Donegal host Tyrone this Saturday. We will need a lot of stewards and help with shops etc. to ensure it runs smoothly. If you are available can you let Alan Martin, Club Secretary, know to confirm on 086 172 3899. We would ask all members to give up a few hours as an event like this is so important to the club.
The reserve game against Termon was postponed. The seniors were absent a number of players but played really well in the second half and were unlucky not to earn at least a draw. Despite being 7 points down at one stage and trailing by 5 points at half time the lads put in a strong fightback and really took the game to the visitors. Some fine scores from Martin O’Reilly, a goal from Stephen Mulligan, points from Michael Lynch and Gary Wilson took the scores back to a 1 point difference but Termon held out for the game points. Final score: Seán Mac Cumhaills 1.11 – Termon 2.09. Next week both reserves and seniors travel to play Ballyshannon next Sunday.
